    If you have ever doubted how good of an actor Meryl Streep really is. Watch this again. Also kudos to the makeup team as they hit the nail on the head not only for their skill in making Meryl look like Thatcher but it hitting the time period as well She reminds me of what my grandmother looked like and wore in the eighties and nineties. Outstanding movie with a brilliant performance and a well deserved win for Meryl Streep. Rock solid 8/10.

    My reaction to this film was kinda mixed. There were some elements that I enjoyed, like the coherent script and good pacing of the film; others I found a little lacking, like the aging Thatcher's hallucinatory scenes. But then there was Meryl Streep, and when she was on screen - and that was nearly all the time, as this really was her show - I forgot everything else. This lady is one of the greatest actresses of our time, there's…

    I much prefer the original starring Sacha Baron Cohen.

    Meryl Streep may be the most acclaimed actress working in cinema today, but can she do Strictly? An unfair question, but then the star of The Devil Wears Prada got some equally unfair barracking at the first press screening of The Iron Lady, the controversial – that is, why did they bother at all? – biopic of Margaret Thatcher. Not that Streep gives a terrible performance – no, the posture, the hectoring, the condescension are all spot on – but…

    Film #29 of the "September 2015 Scavenger Hunt" Challenge!
    #13 A political film!

    I did not expect The Iron Lady to take place in Maggie Thatcher's dementia fueled fever dream. This is a shockingly sympathetic portrayal of a controversial political figure as she reflects on her life. On one hand progressively feminist, but on another hand supporting regressive conservative policies, Margaret Thatcher's career is complex, however the complexity is not explored at length.

    Meryl is magic, and her performance…

    Meryl Streep is fine even though the movie was just good.

    Meryl Streep è riuscita a farmi provare empatia verso la Thatcher. Adesso resta da capire se devo ringraziarla oppure no. Interpretazione da brivido.
